TORONTO - It’s been a week for tough decisions for Tim Hudak.
Days after he was forced to drop Thornhill MPP Peter Shurman from the prestigious finance critic role, the PC leader has dumped controversial rural maverick Randy Hillier from his critic portfolio, moved him to the backbench and stripped him of his committee responsibilities.
Sources say Hudak was forced into the move because Hillier broke the cardinal rule of caucus secrecy, leaking inside information about what was discussed by Tory MPPs to the media.
Sounds like Tim thinks the leaked emails came from Hillier himself. Most interesting bit is the suggestion that Hillier fed information to the OLP. Almost treasonous, if this is in fact the case. Least interesting bit is...
[Hillier's] website had no mention of his PC party affiliation Thursday.
...because I don't think it ever did. Wayback machine suggests it never did, anyway.
